This was a beautiful experience of Aswan. It's people, heritage and History from Magdy (Big Mac). Tour guide Magdy was a wealth of information and ensured we had a continuity in historical knowledge throughout the ages.

He was funny, jovial, entertaining. Caring and attentive to our needs and questions. Very grateful to be paired with Magdy Refaat for this trip with a very able and courteous driver in a super comfortable limousine.

Magdy was a wonderful company for the family during the day and gave us a wealth of information which made this trip to Aswan very worthwhile. Very very good value for the money with Magdy and his Driver.

Thank you for making Aswan an unforgettable experience for me and my family.

This tour was amazing. Michael is literally the best guide I've met so far in Egypt. He's knowledgeable, his English is perfect and his whole attitude makes you feel wonderful! Places we've covered were beautiful and interesting, and Michael did not hesitate to go the extra mile to make it possible for me to go up the Soviet-Egyptian monument for some truly superb views. I strongly recommend this tour when you're in Aswan, it was great!

Aida was knowledgeable at each location and made sure we were safe. She stopped to get us water before arriving at the Philae temple. She also arranged for us to have a boat ride to visit the Nubian Village ( my favorite) I would definitely recommend this tour to friends.

Where to begin... Aida is by far one of the most kind, sweet and genuine tour guides/ new friend I’ve ever had the pleasure of interacting with while on vacation. She was very informative about each location we visited and Took the time to answer each and every questioned we had and went above and beyond for our group. She made sure we received great deals while shopping. She made us laugh and truly feel at home. I would recommend this tour to everyone. She truly have a beautiful spirt and a passion for what she does 🕌🇪🇬❤️🌍

Really had a great time on this tour, felt like we’re part of the family from the start. Our guide, Aida told us all about the history of beautiful Aswan, answered our questions and had us laughing throughout our day. Even though we were tired from a long day of traveling, she perked us right up and showed us the important sites. I think my favorite part was the boat ride to the Philae and actually viewing the Philae. I’d definitely come again.

Great tour of Aswan. Big Mac was wonderful, quick and knowledgeable. The high Dam and obelisk are quick but interesting stops and Philae temple is magnificent and fun to explore! We also stopped at a spice store and essence place which were both great but he asked us beforehand which was nice. Overall great experience!

We did a full day guided tour to Aswan with Khaled Elsaady and had a great time. We started with Abu Simbel which was amazing and then continued to the high dam, the Philae Temple, and finished with a nile cruise to Nubian village. Khaled is so knowledgeable about Egyptian history and we were lucky to have him! Thank you, Khaled!

My first time in Egypt was the most amazing time. It is hugely due to the tour we took with Aida. She is the best tour guide I have had to date and I have been on a lot it tours. She was knowledgeable as she gave us information at each stop. She took us to Nubia, the high dam, and Philae temple. I felt very safe with her and well informed. I would recommend her and the tour company to all my friends and family.
